Just call them the Sexually Erotic Conference.
If you follow the Southeastern Conference on Twitter, than you probably noticed things getting a little strange this morning when a couple of tweets of scantily-clad women appeared on their official Twitter account.
Either someone at the SEC’s communication department has a side gig and really wanted you watch their private videos, or more likely, the account was the victim of hackers.
The tweets, which were taken down moments after they went up, included one with a picture of a woman donned only in a bra and underwear with the message: “Hey! Dear, do you want to see me naked boobs? Meet me here,” and included a link to a website probably NSFW or either would kill your computer. If word choice is any indication, the woman was probably Scottish.
Another tweet showed a photo of a woman with lacy underwear who was apparently looking for something under a desk (maybe her missing pants) which said, “Hi! Sugar, do you want to watch my private videos? Go on,” with (of course) another link to something that would probably make your antivirus software go ballistic or at least, your girlfriend mad.
While the SEC removed the tweets, Drew Franklin saved this one of the pantsless IT guru for you:

Shortly after the hack Chuck Dunlap, the SEC’s director of communications, had this to say on Twitter:
Sometimes 'I was hacked' is actually true….
— Chuck Dunlap (@SEC_Chuck) June 25, 2016
Dunlap apologized to followers for the racy photos and said they were working to resolve the issue.
“We became aware of it when we saw some retweets,” Dunlap said in an e-mail to The Washington Post. “The images were removed immediately, our password changed and we have worked with Twitter to resolve the issue. We will continue to monitor our account closely.”
The SEC isn’t the only sports entity that have dealt with hackers, the NFL’s Twitter account was hacked earlier this month, as well. Hackers tweeted out a statement that commissioner Roger Goodell had died, which appeared on the league’s timeline. Goodell, alive and well, took to Twitter shortly afterward to joke about being killed off by his own network for taking a day off.
